Feb-28-10  Eyal: Nice final combination by Anand:

click for larger view

24.Bg6!! Rg8 25.Bxh7! Kxh7 26.Qh4+ Kg6 27.Rd3 Qh5 28.Rg3+ 1-0 (28...Kh6 29.Qf4+ Kh7 and now either 30.Rh3 or 30.Qxb8).

24...Qf6 might have led to an even prettier finish: 25.Qe2! Qe7 26.Qh5 h6 27.Qh4! Rxf1+ (27...Qd6 28.Rxf8+ Qxf8 29.Rd8) 28.Rxf1 Qd6 29.Qg3! e5 30.Qd3! Qe7 31.Rf7 and the black queen can't keep defending f8.

Feb-28-10  anandrulez: <<anandrulez: Did Shirov just win a lost game in Ruy Lopez as White ? I though he was lost and then intimidated his opp wih h4 and the likes :P>

Wouldn't *you* be intimidated playing Shirov?


Scared to death ubfortunately , yes ! :P

Feb-28-10  anandrulez: Very petite combination from Anand , it looked so easy to outplay a 2600 player for Vishy . Anand would have seen bg6 when he made the pawn push , thats why he played nxc5 and all ...Beauty man .

And someone asked why I thought Anand was favored over Topalov.

Feb-28-10  whiteshark: Anand said that <21...Nxe5> was a mistake and that his position is forced win after it. <21...Bxd4> was necessary though his position is clearly better, but not a win.

Where did you find Anand commenting on this game?


Feb-28-10  Eyal: <Did Shirov just win a lost game in Ruy Lopez as White ? I though he was lost and then intimidated his opp wih h4 and the likes :P>

No, Shirov never had a lost game - he held the initiative since Baramidza played 20...f5 (missing the stronger ...Nf4! first). Black could have held, but he made two serious mistakes - first 31...Kf7? (after g6 he should be solid enough), perhaps missing that after 32.Bxh7 the knight on e6 is not really under threat (32...Qxe6?? 33.Bg8+), and then 33...Qe5? (after 33...Be7 34.Ng5+ Kf8 the black king seems reasonably safe).

  tamar: <notyetagm> Look for "Live Ticker" and scroll down at http://liveticker.schachbundesliga....

It is in German, but the gist is given in <whiteshark>'s post.

He said 21...Nxe5 was a mistake "even if I did not see 24 Bg6 immediately" because it gave him a forced win.

  Tabanus: <whiteshark> Finally some life to this page :))

Bundesliga round 11 today:

Mar-01-10  notyetagm: A big final weekend coming up, with 3(!) teams tied for first place.
Mar-01-10  whiteshark: <notyetagm: A big final weekend coming up, with 3(!) teams tied for first place.> Yes, teams are Baden-Baden, Solingen and Bremen with 4 rounds to go. That's 2 weekends, March 20+21, 2010 and April 10+11.

The match Bremen vs Solingen will be played on April 10, 2010. If they drew Baden-Baden will be Team Champion [given that they (as well as Bremen and Solingen) will win their remaining matches], otherwise there will be a playoff between Baden-Baden and the winning team (Solingen or Bremen).

Mar-03-10  whiteshark: reports about the Baden-Baden vs Bremen match last weekend

There are also more audio-tapes with comments (only M. Roiz in English).

I'm a bit unmotivated to translate the rest (at least not before ceegee would have uploaded the games...).

Mar-20-10  whiteshark: Round 12 will start in 2 hours (14:00 hrs local time). Pairings (with live links) are:

Bay München : Eppingen
Erfurt : Trier

König Tegel : Solingen
Berlin : SC Remagen

Emsdetten : Baden-Baden
Wattenscheid : Heidelberg-HSH

Katernberg : Hamburg
Mülheim : Bremen

Mar-20-10  whiteshark: Bacrot is down to 1m 15s at move 25 against Giri (1h 11m). That's sick, I mean, really sick.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Hi <whiteshark>, my beloved chess-results does not tell in this case who had white or black. Round 12:

Mar-20-10  whiteshark: <Tab> A bit tricky. Two teams form a 'travelling unit' for a season. And in your round 12 list the 1st board of the second position (outward) teams (Eppingen, Trier etc) had always <White> (Tiviakov, Lupulescu etc).

So the hosting team pool will get White pieces on board 1 tomorrow, me thinks.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Hmm,

they should be anaspeptic, frasmotic, even compunctuous to cause us such pericombobulation.

Mar-21-10  whiteshark: How what? :D

As the case now stands Bremen is dropped out in the championship. They lost a point in their yesterdays 4-4 vs Mülheim.

Round 13 is underway...

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Werder Bremen did very well today though with 7,5:0.5. Results round 13:

Mar-22-10  whiteshark: Yes, their team spirit is really ok. :)
Next round they will meet Solingen and I'm expecting a tough fight.
Apr-09-10  whiteshark: Tomorrow is <High Noon> of the Bundesliga when the top 4 teams will meet:

OSG Baden-Baden - SV Mülheim Nord
Werder Bremen - SG Solingen

Apr-10-10  whiteshark: OSG Baden-Baden SV Mülheim Nord

bd 1 Shirov 2730 vs Vachier-Lagrave 2718
bd 2 Bacrot 2709 vs Tregubov 2649
bd 3 Adams 2682 vs Fridman 2661
bd 4 Naiditsch 2685 vs Golod 2602
bd 5 Vallejo Pons 2696 vs Berelowitsch 2551
bd 6 Nisipeanu 2664 vs Levin 2481
bd 7 Gustafsson 2622 vs Hausrath 2528
bd 8 Dautov 2596 vs Schebler 2486

live coverage:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: I guess OSG Baden-Baden will win, they appear to lead by one point before last round. Results round 14:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: OSG Baden-Baden won convincingly. Results round 15 (last round):

Jul-21-10  whiteshark: I voted for A Giri vs E Maghami, 2009 as the best game of the season.
